Tonya Ward said it was her 8-year-old nephew Jackson Burkett‘s first swim of the season at the Memorial Park Community Center’s End of School Blowout on Friday.

“We had never been to the community center so we just wanted to come check it out,” Ward said. “That’s mainly the reason we came, but it was also to give him an opportunity to swim. For this summer, it’s his first swim.”

With community center sign-up sheets in hand, Ward said she was impressed by the activities planned for the event and hopes to join.
